    Creature from the Black Lagoon - Universal
    Gary Ross is producing, the talented (if a tad vanilla) filmmaker between movies like Pleasantville and Dave. (Ross's father wrote the screenplay for the original Creature from the Black Lagoon.)
    The Incredible Shrinking Man - Imagine
    Keenan Ivory Wyans will direct Eddie Murphy in this one. I'm a fan of Murphy, but just...ick. Why remake THIS ONE?!?!? (And please don't mention that Lily Tomlin flick!)

    Somehow, Eddie Murphy has the ability to bring together the elements to successfully do entertaining remakes of already accepted film classic. To his credit, it's mostly his personal genius. It's not an easy task.

    At least Stephen Soderberg isn't involved here...amazing!

    Well, Soderbergh did Ocean's 11 because he thought it was better to remake bad movies than good ones. And let's face it, they don't get much worse than Creature From the Black Lagoon. There's only one way to go on that one...up!

    This is starting to get out of hand.
